Descriptionbought used, 3rd owner in May of 2012. truck originally had the brush guard, stainless bug deflector, and stainless trim pieces already on it.
I spec'ed out almost this exact truck when day dreaming way back in hot metals class in high school, 2002. never dreamed that 11 years later the truck of my dreams would be mine. actually I was torn between it and a little mid-sized truck.
i don't really "need" a diesel, but i knew my old 1/2 ton truck wasn't going to be able to handle my needs in the future, so i started looking in December of '12 and found a completely different truck that i was interested at a "diesel" only dealer in Roscoe Ill. anyhow, after looking at that truck, i decided it wasn't for me. but not 2 trucks away as this truck. and man do i gotta say this thing looked sharp.
i still cant believe its mine, i still get giddy looking at it some days. corny as that sounds i wouldn't trade it for any other, even tough i could have bought 3rd gens for close to the same price.
my original idea for it was to keep it stone stock, with just updates for reliability. however, that quickly changed when i did my first mod for "fuel mileage" the EDGE JWA.... and then i got bit by the bug.
should be an interesting journey, i am hoping that i will be happy with 450-500 horse, i really don't think i will need to be higher then that, and that should give me a stout platform to stay with.
thanks for looking, and don't forget to vote for TOTM, and if you like it please rate it above.
